ABC Wednesday, Round 4 - I.


Like Alice's White Rabbit, "I'm late! I'm late!"
Still, they say it's better late than never, so here is my post for the letter I.
I is for Island.

The above photo was taken from Burtonport, which is about 4 miles from Dungloe. The houses you can see in the distance are on Inishfree (the name means Island of heather)
Inishfree was our home for 12 years, although our house isn't visible from this angle.
The rocks in the foreground are on the mainland, but there's part of another island just visible between them and Inishfree.

Now, this photo shows Inishfree seen from an upstairs window in our home in Dungloe. I took it early this morning in beautiful spring weather. It's not too clear, as there's a haze over the sea. Our old home is barely visible near the shore to the left of the photo. The hill behind is yet another island.

And this is almost the same view taken at sunset yesterday evening.

As I'm showing the view from upstairs, I thought I'd add these two, taken to the left of the others. Two more narrow, flat islands this morning...

...and yesterday evening!

Many more I posts, inventive, intriguing and informative, can be found on the dedicated site. Why not investigate.

What amazing colours! Inishfree must have been a wonderful place to live. (Although I'm sure it was also hard at times!)

You are not TOO late... I love all of your photos...several have done island this time...yours is so good with the boulders in the foreground. I am partial to sunsets and the last shot is most wonderful...I like the two sets of morning and evening, I might try that. Like your green post also. I'm wandering over to Skywatch....

You're lucky to live at such a tranquil-looking location. I bet you don't have hordes of students whooping it up next to you every night.

It is amazing to me that so many islands are all so close together. Beautiful photos, Ma'am.
